"Leigh is a gracious Southern lady who uses a combination of competence and consideration to get things done. Always diplomatic, Leigh is wonderful at coming up with innovative solutions to challenging situations that work for everyone.
Leigh possesses a strong work ethic, a high degree of personal integrity, and a genuine desire to give you the event of your dreams; and she delivers!
I could not have done my daughter's wedding without her. In the months leading up to the wedding, she served as my right hand. On the day of the wedding she was my right hand, my left hand and my saving grace!
I thought that I could only afford a day-of-wedding coordinator, but a few months before the wedding, I felt that my daughter and I would both benefit from hiring Leigh. She instantly became a part of our team and provided so much help and encouragement. She excelled at organization, vendor relationships, logistics, day-of-wedding coordination and comprehensive timelines. In addition, she was excellent at providing reassurance to the Bride and the Mother of the Bride! Of the many wedding-related expenses, the best money that I spent was on hiring Leigh!"
"Processional music began to play as the cathedral doors slowly opened to a sanctuary imbued with the most beautiful color streams of story-telling windows, friends and family whose warm smiles beckoned me to just take a breath and take a step, and it was in that moment that I began to dream. Standing there in my baby blue dress with a crown of baby's breath and a basket of petals in my hand, I took that first step and it took my breath away. It was in that moment that I began to dream of my special day.
I'm one of the lucky ones I think, but it wasn't luck that made my own day so special that it took my breath away again. It was Leigh. Hands-down, without a doubt, 100% the reason my dreams became a reality. When I first met with Leigh, I showed her a smattering of pictures I had saved from here and there and I told her the vision I had...shabby chic, vintage country, classy yet fun and fresh, kid friendly, casual...I was all over the place. I knew what I wanted but I didn't know how to pull it off. Leigh met my vision with insight, experience, and a natural God given talent, and she went to work. She had so many fabulous ideas and knowledge of local resources, that all I had to do was sit back and let her work her magic. I am fairly decisive in what I like or don't like, but everything she brought to the table was more than I could ask for. I am not exaggerating when I say that she far exceeded my expectations. I never had to worry and I never had to stress. How many brides can say that?!
I could not have asked for a more perfect day! I can't begin to count how many people said it was the most beautiful and fun wedding celebration they had ever been to, and I may be biased, but I agree. One friend even referred to it as the "event of the decade." For me, however, it was the event of a lifetime. Leigh will always have such a special place in our hearts, and I know she will do the same for you."
"Wow, it is hard to believe it is now over two months since our wedding. As I look back at this magical day I know I could not have pulled this long-distance wedding off without Leigh. We couldn't have done it without her suggestions, sage advice, experience, and time-line. However, it was not just her organizational input that was important. I actually loved the wedding day itself because I did not have to think about the minute details of our reception - Leigh and Rebecca took care of these. Because of that I can echo my husband's words the morning after our wedding: "that party was the best night of my life". So, thank you to Leigh for all she did: calming me down over many phone calls from Los Angeles leading up to our big day, seeing to the caterers, band, pictures at Carnton, seating, bartenders, lighting, and clean-up. My dad especially enjoyed her handling of the police when they showed up late in the evening (which I didn't even know about until a few weeks later).
This wedding was everything I could have ever imagined."
"Leigh was a fantastic coordinator to work with - hiring her was one of the best wedding related decisions my husband & I made! She has a genuinely caring manner about her that immediately puts you at ease and lets you know she is as invested in making your day special as you are in having a wonderful wedding. Her professionalism, problem solving skills, and remarkable ways of communicating with us and vendors alike were just a few of the incredible things we loved about working with her! My husband & I both highly recommend Leigh to help you plan & pull off a tasteful, fun, and smooth wedding. Our day went off without a hitch thanks to her. We are truly grateful, Leigh!"
"Leigh Bawcom was a lifesaver at my wedding in May 2011. Her kindness, organization, and knowledge kept me calm and able to actually enjoy my big day. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone needing an event of any type planned. Her passion for pleasing her clients is obvious in the quality of her work. She is a joy to work with!"
"My husband and I were married at Carnton Plantation in September 2011 and had the absolute privilege to work with Leigh Bawcom, who was Carnton's Special Events Coordinator at the time. Leigh truly made our wedding a day out of our dreams. It was a complete joy to interact with Leigh. I cannot tell you how supportive, warm, sensible, innovative & organized Leigh is. She was creative when the weather didn't cooperate, and kindly coordinated friends and family during the craziness of the big day. I would give my highest recommendation to Leigh. Anyone who gets to work with her is beyond lucky. I am most blessed that even after the big day we are able to call Leigh our friend."
"Leigh Bawcom was instrumental in helping to plan the wedding day of my dreams. From my first meeting with her and feeling so comfortable, to the part where she held the train of my dress so it didn't get wet as I walked down the aisle, Leigh was there every step of the way. Her attention to detail is impeccable, her demeanor is calm, cool and collective and she has great ideas that I couldn't have ever dreamed. She also has many contacts throughout the Nashville-area, so you do not have to go searching on your own. I highly recommend Leigh to plan any event (small or large). You will not be disappointed and end up coming away with an amazing event!"
"Leigh Bawcom is one of the most creative and organized people I know. I have had the good fortune to work with her on several events, large and small, that have been highly successful. Her goals are to connect and listen to those she serves resulting in clients who are delighted and who will continue to be her best referrals. She is just a star!"
